Day at the Beach, South Pacific Artisans Blog Hop

Day at the Beach, Places You'll Go, Stampin' Up!, Papercraft by Jennifer Frost, Watercolour for Cardmakers,

The South Pacific Artisans have conspired to bring you a mini blog hop today that showcases the fun Day at the Beach stamp set.  When I glimpsed this set in the holiday catalogue I added it to my order immediately!  I think it will be perfect for embellishing a scrapbook of our family holiday to sunny Queensland earlier this year, not to mention, great for beachy inspired cards like these ones here today.

In keeping with the little watercolouring theme I had going with these projects, I was inspired to try a little messy watercolouring by this card made by Debby at Lime Doodle Designs.  I stamped the images over a piece of shimmery white, added little hearts from the Places You'll Go set in the gaps between, then aqua painted.  Despite my
